I'm Tired

I'm angry.

I'm scared.

I'm afraid if I start crying I'll never stop.

Then I get a phone call, it's Jerri telling me a Beans story.

Beans: Momma you got hiccup medicine?

Momma: No Beans, they don't make hiccup medicine. Hold your breath.

Beans blows into her hand and quickly closes her hand over it.

I love the story about Beans...that is the cutest thing ever! I am also very sorry to hear the news you shared...this is such a bad time for many people and I am reminded of the many Depression Era stories that have circulated in my own family and I know this isn't the depression, but it is depressing...but one thing I believe very strongly in is that when God closes one door, another one opens...just KEEP faith and do what you need to do, but remember the importance of getting through this as a family. I'll keep you in my prayers!

Hang in there Miz Brenda ~

You hang in there, Miz Brenda. I believe in you. You are a survivor and this too will pass. You are in my prayers and many others, too. Think positive and don't give up hope.

No matter how dark it looks ahead, there's always a ray of sunshine...right now it's Beans:-) Such an adorable little character she is!! I know you're scared and angry right now...just know that we're here for you and if you need to cry all day long, then do so!! I find once I can cry it all out, I feel so much better afterwards:-) xoxo

Oh, Miz Brenda, I somehow missed your recent post about your husband's job until this morning. I'm so sorry. I know you will make it through somehow though. You've been around long enough to know the struggles of life and how to hang in there. It sure isn't fun though. I'm glad you have wonderful family to cheer you up--specially that Beans.

I'll be praying for you and your husband.

Hi Brenda,

Beans sounds like such a ray of sunshine in your life. I am so sorry you are going through this rough time in your life Brenda. I know God has a plan for you. One of my favorite verses is Jeremiah 29:11 when I get down I read this verse over and over. I'll be praying for you.
